Obama as a Deep State Darth Vader is just an extension of same old, blatantly racist and Trump-inspired Birther crap

When you’re reduced to using Sarah Huckabee (Yew know who ma daddy wuz?) Sanders as your spokesperson, it’s not a great omen, let’s face it…

Team Trump placed trust in Comey when he was dinging Clinton. Now? Not so much. https://t.co/WR4zbQtOPr

Even Mike Allan — founder of Politico, currently of Koch-funded Axios — is beginning to lose his enthusiasm for cheerleading the Trump maladministration:
… Towergate is a fascinating test of Trump’s great gamble that he can do the job of president in a totally new way: largely improvisational, driven by whims, moods and obsessions; thinly staffed, like his campaign, and with poorly enforced process, not taking advantage of the massive safety net available to him; heavily reliant on family; and unconstrained by manners, rituals or precedent…
A Democratic theory is that if Trump believes problematic transcripts of recorded calls with Russians may dribble or gush out, why not discredit them in advance as a political dirty trick? Then when they emerge, you can say “Aha!” rather than being on the defensive.
But a Republican close to the White House said that’s overthinking it: That “view is quite plausible. But I do not believe they are playing chess. I think they are playing Trivial Pursuit.”
Yeah, more like they’re playing Candyland — but they think it’s Monopoly.
